Overheard at West LegalWorks Last Week

I was in Chicago last week to speak at the West LegalWorks e-Discovery and Records Retention Conference. (it’s a  trifecta series that West does every fall: New York, Chicago and San Franciso. The SF show is coming up Dec. 10-11 at the Ritz Carlton)

While listening to some of the other excellent panelists, I heard the following observations which I think are worth repeating:

Browning Marean of DLA Piper:  “The quick peek provision of the FRCP ED rules is tantamount to malpractice.”

George Socha:  “Judge Grimms ruling in Victor Stanley requires firms to engage an outside expert in every case.”

Florinda Balridge (Fulbright Jaworski) and Mary Pat Poteet (DLA Piper) : “More and more our corporate clients are contacting ED vendors directly and leaving us out of the loop.”

Three very strong statements about the current state of the ED space:  now tell me what you think.
